The TSA wants to do more than sniff your powders
September 12, 2009
Using a new kind of explosive detection technology, the [TSA] plans to screen certain powders coming through airport checkpoints by taking a sample of the powder and doing an on-the-spot test.
Hmmm, a “new kind of explosive detection technology.” Thank you for your vagueness, NYTs… might as well of called it a “safety-making thingymaboob.” With all the sniffing, testing and proding, it probably won’t be long before they start puncturing passangers’ ears with little ID tags and running them through rat mazes.
Oh, wait, those are called security lines!
